Elite novo smart trainer problems


(Jamie Bird) #1

Hi everyone ,
New here so go easy :rofl:.

I’m on my zwift weeks free trial and Iv got a ELITE NOVO SMART TRAINER . I seem to be having issues with pretty much everything to be honest .
On my rides so far my average power is 95w. I seem to just be spinning my legs so fast to get up to 15/20mph. I can’t feel any change of resistance from the turbo trainer. Everyone is just zooming past me all the time .
I’m connected via Bluetooth to my windows laptop and connection seems fine. One problem is my garmin forerunner 235 watch won’t sync so I’m not getting any heart rate input at the moment. Will this have an impact of power and speed ?
I really like zwift so far out it’s annoying me that all the numbers seem so far out. Is it worth changing the turbo trainer ?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated . Sorry for going on I find it difficult to describe the problems Iv been having .
Thank you,

Jamie

I recommend you get a USB ANT+ dongle and USB extension cable. Then pair via ANT+ and select the ANT+ FE-C options. I believe I saw somewhere that for whatever reason, that solves most of the problems with this particular trainer.
